    Dayton began the afternoon news conference by recalling the 2010 NFC Championship Game, in which the Vikings fell in painful fashion to the New Orleans Saints, narrowly missing a trip to the Super Bowl. “This is a great response to that,” he said, turning around to smile at team owner Mark Wilf.

    Joining Dayton and Wilf were bid committee co-chairs Marilyn Carlson Nelson, board member at Carlson Cos.; U.S. Bankcore CEO Richard Davis, Vikings Vice President Lester Bagley, Melvin Tennant of Meet Minneapolis, Michael Langley of Greater MSP, and Michele Kelm-Helgen, executive director of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority. All members of the group had been in Atlanta for the bid presentation.
